Most of the new ones are language typos or rewordings. Some of which look a little picky to me to be honest.

are they being found in the CVS versions or the acutal beta2, does anyone know?

you can see this if you look inside the bug report

Yes, picky. Beeing picky and having focus on quality are two sides of the same coin. When I posted the first one, I had placed a "(Minor)" to the left in the bug title, which got deleted within a few minutes. I considered that a signal : "Just shoot ! - we want them !" ;) - It won't take SHS`long to almost half the bug tracker for phpBB 3.0 right now.

I don't think they are picky at all. They all seem to make sense, and it saves me from having to change them myself. I would rather it go out with good grammar :)

hmm, I dont see the reason of going to beta3 and after that, rc1 and/or/maybe rc2...
bug is already less, mostly visual ones. I think one more pre-release is already enough, and that should be named rc :mrgreen:

Sorry John, wasn't directly having a go at you there.
Maybe picky was the wrong word. I think some (not necessarily yours) are a case of personal preference on the wording rather than picking up on grammatical or misleading things.

But you don't know if fixing one bug has caused another one. That's why beta3 makes sense.

Kevin,

No offense taken :) - Actually I think it's the word that hits the spot, when it's about working on language packages.

- - -

Have you noticed that the increase in the total number of codelines has stopped (I think about two weeks ago or so), ref. CVS statistics ? I speculate that we are about to have a complete Olympus in the CVS now :P - Also supposing that the dev. team members are testing themselves blue in head at the moment ...

As I see it, thare no "nasty one's" in the Bug tracker any longer.
